“Australian Family of Five”
Reviewed June 20, 2012

Our family two adults and three children stayed at Corso Italia Suites. The apartment was modern and had pleanty of space for a family of five. We were pleased with the apartment's facilities. The kitchen was great and I cooked meals every evening from produce from the local supermarket. The apartment had two bathrooms however the shower in the main bathroom did not work very well so we all used the ensuite shower in the main bedroom. Locating the office was interesting on the first day, it is a local travel agency on the main street not a hotel reception. They were not open on the day we arrived Sunday, which we were aware from communications. We rang a phone number on the door of the office and someone arrived a few minutes later. If you are arriving on a Sunday or after bussiness hours I recommend you have a mobile phone. If we return to Sorrento we would stay here again. It is good for a family.

Stayed for four nights. Very central location with easy access to everywhere in Sorrento. Arrived on the first day and the office was closed but Annamaire kindly came when we rang to let us in. The first apartment they put us in was a HUGE disappointment. Although it was clean and had all you would need it was at the back of the building with a view overlooking someone's back yard (bins and hanging laundry). No natural light and it was very pokey. I contacted Annamaire and asked could we be moved and she kindly moved us the following morning without any hassle. The second apartment was much brighter and over looked the main street. Bed was very comfy and kitchen was adequate. The only negatives were; the shower was ridiculous.... it was so small and the doors on both sides kept coming off the runner so it was a nightmare to get in and out. Also if you are over 11 stone you won't even get into the shower i would imagine (its TINY). There is also only one toilet roll provided and no washing up liquid or washing cloth in the kitchen. While this is not a big deal it just means you have to go out and buy all these things! Overall the apartment was excellent, but ensure you ask for a balcony apartment because the other alternative was a bitter dissapointment. Also make sure you bring ear plugs with you as the noise from the street (bars, scooters, traffic etc) is terrible and is bad from early morning. There is a fab little ice-cream parlour directly below the apartment and the staff are super friendly and it serves the most amazing ice-cream.! Overall a superb trip in Sorrento and I would stay in this accommodation again.

Room Tip: Only stay if you can get a balcony room/apartment

We preferred an apartment to a hotel while in Sorrento, and we couldn't have picked a better location. The apartment was nicely decorated, clean, spacious and comfortable. It had everything you could need. I would definitely recommend it.

For those who are light sleepers, you might find the noise from the street below, a bit too much. This didn't bother me.

Sorrento is an excellent base for exploring the Amalfi coast etc. This apartment was in the heart of town and it was handy for all public transports. The rooms were well appointed and pleasant, furnishing near new. We arrived on Easter Sunday and so the reception wasn't open. We had to ring a number but Roberto came within 10 mins. He spent a good length of time walking us thru everything - a kind guy. Note that they don't do room service if you stay for less than a week (not that it worried us).

The only drawback was that the hair dryer wasn't fully functional. For a woman, this wasn't trivial!

Ah...there is this hugely popular gelato cafe only a few shops away from the apartment on Corso Italia, not far from the town square. Check it out. It became part of our daily diet during our stay.

We had the two bedroom with kitchenette - which was fine for our family of five, the eldest son slept on the sofa bed. The location is great - the balconies overlook the main street. The rooms are a good size, the kitchenette is one of those Ikea cupboards with a sink, fridge and two hot plates, with a microwave elsewhere.
Wi-fi was a bit weak - our 11 year old son spent alot of time with his face to the corner of the room as that was the best wifi reception!
Parking in Sorrento is a bit of a nightmare - expect to pay 20-30E a day. Also get yourself a roadmap before you go - our car hire people did not provide one and the Italians seem reluctant to clearly sign the roads!

We stayed at Corso Italia Suites for 5 nights. We were a group of 9 made up of two families. We had two apartments that shared the same entrance door - which was absolutely perfect for us. The staff were great - although we didn't have a lot to do with them during our stay. The rooms were good - but a little noisy (especially the 7:20am bells). Then again, what can you expect when you are so wonderfully located! My daughter found the sofa bed uncomfortable and ended up just sleeping on the sofa. Great wireless internet.
One of our party had an accident AFTER we had left the apartment and were boarding the ferry. As a result we had to stay longer in Sorrento - departing late afternoon. It was pouring with rain. Daniella from Corso Italia Suites kindly offered us the use of a room for the day. Now THAT's service. We were extremely grateful.
